and was in the meeting with joe biden. and scientist after scientist has showed there is no correlation in the video games. and i just think pointing in that direction is taking us away from the real problem which is guns. it's not an either/or, but i'd like to start up here. >> first of all, who were the scientists? are they scientists that the video game industry paid for? because i'll tell you what, i conducted my own scientific survey with two teenage boys watching them and watching all of their friends grow up. of course, it wasn't a scientific study. i saw it with my own eyes, and i'm telling you, kids from the age these days of 8, 9, 10 to the time they're 20, 21, 22 simulate the murder of thousands and thousands of human beings on these video games. donny, just -- and i had this conversation with mike barnicle before on the air, i believe -- just as pornography desensitizes young males to sexuality, these video games desensitize young males. and movies by people like quentin tarantino that make chopped up, shot-up cadavers a punch line where the audience actually laughs, those work together

clinton, you also have joe biden, he's been ahead of this issue for a long time and a pers -- and senator gill brand, used to talk about how she had a gun underneath her bed and she's also someone who's talking about what do we do to stop gun violence. is this going to be even be beyond a conversation, i'm wondering, ted? is gun control going to be a kind of litmus test in 2016 for democrats? >> i think it could be. in presidential politics, there are basically two issues, the economy and war. and if the nation's economy continues to improve, if we're able to get out of afghanistan the way the president got us out of iraq. this issue of gun violence is emerging very quickly. and i have no doubt that it could become one of the dominant issues in the midterm election and also in the general election. >> also making news this morning, a story that has left a lot of football fans, well, you don't even have to be a faj because you probably heart about left folks feeling duped. notre dame's linebacker, manti teo's girlfriend died back in september, at least that's what we thought but it turned
